How Do Dermal Fillers Works?
Dermal Fillers are a quick procedure for reducing creases, filling areas where one experiences volume loss, for reducing wrinkles and for reshaping areas of the face such as the cheekbones, chin and nose.
Botox is usually used in conjunction with dermal fillers for optimal wrinkle reduction. Lip fillers are also commonly used for those with thin lips or creased lips.
Face and lip fillers (dermal fillers)
Face and lip fillers (dermal fillers) are substances injected into your face. They fill lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas such as your lips or cheeks.
Fillers are not permanent. How long they last depends on things like the type of filler and where it’s injected. They usually last between 6 and 18 months.
Most dermal fillers used in the UK contain a natural substance called hyaluronic acid.
If you have fillers, the rest of your face will continue to age as normal.
How much face and lip fillers cost
The cost of dermal fillers can range from £200 to several hundred pounds, depending on things like the type of product and number of syringes used, and the complexity of the area being treated.
